No reason a manta 16v can't be used as an everyday car.

If its running on injection it will be easy to drive and economical, mine did around 35mpg on a long motorway run.

If you live near the sea just be sure to rust treat the chassis well when you buy one and wash it often (including under arches and sills)

Should serve you well for a long time then.

Mantas were built for that tarbet road :D

As said, if you take time to do some corrosion prevention with some good quality stuff, no reason it won't last easily.

Keep it clean and waxed and it'll be fine. If I make it up their with mine in sept I'll show you what I've done.
